If you're like me, chances are you've orphaned a couple strategy guides in your trading time and don't know what to do with the beasts now that the game they're for is gone.

Well, that's what this thread is for.  Post your collection of orphaned strategy guides and trade for someone else's!  Give these sad game guides a new home.

I currently have the following orphaned guides:

-Star Ocean 3: Til the End of Time (BRADYGAMES)

Hmm, good idea actually.

I have the Fable guide sitting here. It was quite useful for me during the game.

Jeff could I get the Fable one from you?? I have the game, but there is no way I will be able to find everything myself. I don't know if this will work like the PIFF thread or not,  but I do have a couple of guides that I no longer have the games for.

They are

Freespace 2 (sybex)
Joint Strike Fighter (Prima)

Wish I had some newer ones, but they are hard to come by way out here in the sticks

I'm assuming this is a PIFF thread.  We had one like it over at GG, but the thread stagnated after a while.

I'd like to take that Freespace 2 manual on my next journey into space.  Who knows what dangers lurk out there.

I'll offer up Age of Mythology.

Anyone out there have a Mafia guide just sitting on the shelf?

Hi, alienhead_69

Thanks for offering up all the freebitude -

I'd like to give the Mafia guide a good read.  I have the game but haven't got around to playing it yet - I will soon and this is perfect timing.

I sent out the Age of Mythology Strat guide as a freebie, but I have another copy of the same guide to offer up to keep my karma even.

I'm also thinking about asking for the Ghost Recon guide, but I'll have to find a PIFF strategy guide to throw in the pile.

Mytocles. No game trades-this is supposed to be a guide trade/freebie thread, so I am not taking your games.
I dont see anythign I want, so send me a pm with your info and I will send you the guide this week. I will find something on your list when you get in some new stuff, never fear.

hey, Rage,

 it does seem to be leading toward a PIFF though, you're right, and that's fine with me, i just hated to leave you hanging with nothing...  i'm a little afraid of that "never fear" though :wink:

thanks, PM on it's way!

Pokemon Colosseum is "taken".  

Sudy Nym has no strat guides to offer and doesn't expect any anytime soon (everyone has games for a PIFF, not everyone has guides) - i have no problem with that, so i guess i'll just withdraw it from the PIFF list - no karma point for me and no negative karma for him - works for us!  hopefully i haven't stepped on any karma police toes... smile   i promise never to do it again if it's really against the rules!! :?

thanks,

Of course he "forgot" about that strategy guide for Alpha Centauri he "loaned" me.  Right Sudy?  Right?   :wink:

I'll put that up to cover his butt.  It's anyone's for the asking.

Thanks, alienhead_69 -

The Mafia & GR guides arrived today in great shape.  I've already enjoyed them and they will be very helpful in the future.  Going to post + feedback now.

Anybody want my Empire Earth or Age of Mythology strat guides?

Thank you, warning. ;P The guide's a Christmas present for my sister, so I very much appreciate it.

You're up +2 now, I think. Didn't you once send me that PS2 remote for free? One of these days, when I clear out my collection of games, etc., I'll have to give away some stuff here-- I've received some very generous "freebies"/trades in the past year.

Is there anyway I can grab that from you? I never done this before, so you have to hand walk me through this.

PS I have no guides to trade, so if that's a requirement, nevermind then. biggrin
